FATHER OF MURDERED MONGOLIAN MODEL TO MEET MALAYSIA’S AG
The father of murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu will be meeting with Malaysia’s new Attorney-General on Tuesday. The family’s lawyer Ramkarpal Singh said Dr Setev Shaariibuu would meet Mr Tommy Thomas at 3pm to discuss reopening the murder case. Ms Altantuya, 28, is believed to have been shot dead before her body was blown up with explosives at a forest in Shah Alam in 2006. Last month the Mongolian President urges Malaysia to reopen her murder case. In 2015, two former police officers were sentenced to death for the crime after their sentencing in 2009 but acquitted four years later. Sirul Azhar Umar, one of the former policemen convicted has been in detention at the Immigration and Border Protection Department’s facility in Sydney, Australia since 2015 after his acquittal was “overturned by’’ the Malaysian Federal Court.
